If print newspapers survive in America they'll look a lot like the new Chicago Tribune. Half of what I learned in J-school is completely out the window -- but it is just a matter of the print media catching up with the rest of world. ~ link

The Swedes, who are perhaps more sensitive about gender-sensitivity than the rest of the world, have come up with a street crossing sign featuring a woman -- thus validating female pedestrians, too. I suppose that it can't hurt -- and it may help. Lead on -- but watch for cars. ~ link

"Zondervan launches a campaign today to create the unique edition, which will include its 31,173 verses, each handwritten by a different person." Novel but not very useful. ~ link 1 | link 2

I heard that hotmail is now providing 5 gigs of storage. So, I dug up my old hotmail password and fired up the account -- and it's true. Of course, my gmail account is currently providing 7 gigs -- of which I'm using 40% -- and they seem to increase my capacity each time I get near the 60% mark. ~ hotmail link

I hope you're wrong about the tribune and the future of papers. The thing is hideous. It is an assault on the eyes and offers little for the mind. I am angry at what Sam Zell is doing to the papers and saddened by what is happening to the industry in general. Publishers are cutting so much, they have nothing to sell. If it weren't for the fact that the coupons in the Sunday paper made up for the cost of my subscription, I wouldn't buy.
